Using the J-Integra Logging Mechanism


By default, J-Integra does not log any messages to a file. If this is desired for your application, we advise you to use the jintegra_reduced_logging.jar runtime file instead of jintegra.jar. Simply include jintegra_reduced_logging.jar in your Classpath instead of jintegra.jar. This will result in better overall performance. However, if you require some form of logging you will have to use the jintegra.jar runtime file.

Turning on J-Integra Logging

There are two methods you can use to turn on J-Integra logging:

Setting Java Properties During Runtime

  java -DJINTEGRA_LOG_FILE="c:\temp\jintegra.log" -DJINTEGRA_LOG_LEVEL=3 

Setting Java Properties in Source Code

Public static void main(String args[]) {
System.setProperty("JINTEGRA_LOG_FILE", "c:\\temp\\jintegra.log");
System.setProperty("JINTEGRA_LOG_LEVEL", "3");
Public static void main(String args[]) {
com.linar.jintegra.Log.logImmediately(3, "c:\\temp\\jintegra.log");

Description of Logging Levels

There are four possible logging levels:

  SILENT  = 0  Does not create a log file
  ERROR   = 1  Only logs the errors
  BRIEF   = 2  Reports only significant events
  VERBOSE = 3  Reports everything

Whenever sending logs to J-Integra Support, a logging level of VERBOSE should be used.
